Outside Facilities & Transfers

Tuesday, April 16, 2013 at 4:26:40 PM

There are times when a patient or their family requests a second opinion from an outside facility or a transfer. It is the responsibility of the attending to facilitate this process by personally contacting the facility. Care managers can assist you in obtaining the correct contact information.
If health information needs to be sent to another facility for a second opinion or prior to transfer, please write an order in the chart for the specific information required. This should be ordered STAT, if needed that day. HIM will send the documents during regular business hours and the nursing supervisor evenings and weekends.
